About Campaign

M1 Peer Pleasure is a youth theatre festival with a social conscience. This year, we are taking a closer look at how people with disabilities live in Singapore. Where are their voices and stories in our everyday? In a country that prizes efficiency, productivity and material success, can people with disabilities have a place in our economy, schools and community?

Unable to stage live performances as usual at the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we will be presenting the festival online from 4 - 16 August; with majority of the programmes offered for free!

Your donation will help us into recover our loss of ticketing income and other festival costs.

We will be featuring:

- What if, a new media experience co-created by a multidisciplinary group of performers with disabilities, designers and directors amid a pandemic, on being human

- Riley's Rain, a sensory story-telling experience designed for audiences with autism spectrum disorder and sensory sensitivities, through a video paired with a craft kit

- A staged reading of The Other People and If These Wheels Could Speak... devised and performed by students of Dunman High and Tanjong Katong Girl's School, centred respectively on persons with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and cerebral palsy

We work with communities of all ages, in various settings, and on issues ranging from poverty, end-of-life, governance and nationhood, community building, and the well-being of seniors. We also provide training and thought leadership related to arts-based community development work.
